Cody's Making a Difference in the World

Cody's Trailer from Richelle Hecker on Vimeo.

"Cody" is a documentary, narrated by Glenn Close, and features one of Albuquerque's bravest daughters. It debuts on PBS stations across the country this week, but you can catch it at the Kimo Theatre tonight at 5pm for $10. The money benefits the Cody Unser First Step Foundation.

I served on the board for two years and believe this young college graduate, who has traveled the world helping other paralyzed children with scuba adventures and moral support, and has advocated for stem cell research approval and funding, will make a huge difference in our world. She has always told me, "Peter, it's not what happens to you, it's what you do with it."

To read more about her dreams and goals check out her interview in USA Weekend.

If you have time, join Cody and I late this afternoon at the Kimo. Her more of her story and how she's making a difference. And after the film, head to Yanni's Restaurant for a private party.
